The WESTERNS tournament is one of the first top level events of the UK croquet year and takes place at East Dorset on 12th – 14th May. There are already several world class players entered including the reigning ladies world champion.
Croquet not only requires all the usual skills of bat and ball games but also demands tactical awareness. But don’t worry, if you come to watch there will be somebody there who can explain the tactics and the skill required.
EDLTCC Croquet Section has set up the opportunity for Poole U3A to offer an “Introduction to Golf Croquet” course on specified Thursday mornings during the U3A summer term. If you know of anyone currently involved with Poole U3A who potentially might be interested in Croquet, please suggest that they register their interest by contacting U3A’s Rod Turner, email: email@example.com as soon as possible – the course commences on Thursday 11 May 2017. The Club requests all Members to be welcoming to the U3A attendees and to proffer assistance as required. It is hoped that, on completion of the course, a proportion of the attendees will be attracted into full Croquet membership and thus become part of our extended ‘family’.

Following on from last term’s box leagues, Dan will be running a new set of box leagues to give you the opportunity to play some matches over the winter period.
The box leagues will involve arranging matches with other players in your box at times to suit you and then passing the results back to Dan so he can keep the boxes up to date. Matches are best of 3 sets, if 1-1 then the 3rd will be decided by a 10 point tiebreak.
Entries are £5 and the deadline for entries will be Monday 13th March.
Hope to hear from you soon!
